Welcome to Mackenzie Spine
In our practice, we strive to attain the best possible healing and recovery for every patient. Because every patient is unique, we prescribe treatment based on a thorough evaluation, which we perform utilizing the latest technological advancements available. We believe in evaluating patients promptly and educating them on their diagnosis so they can play an active role in the decision-making and treatment process. Our clinical experience has shown us that patients who participate in their own healthcare decisions are far more likely to achieve an optimal level of healing and recovery.
Dr. Mackenzie is an expert in MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGICAL TECHNIQUES for spinal surgery. This means that, wherever possible, incisions will be small and damage to adjacent tissues will be minimized by using careful muscle splitting techniques or approaches where less muscular damage occurs. This results in less postoperative pain and faster recovery. Please note that although the majority of spinal problems can be treated this way, there are exceptions for complex problems.
